Mirth - We learned long ago that they key isn't to outrun Star, it's to outrun Gus.

Martok - I don't know if it's possible to have an "anti-boner"...but I now have one.

Why a "book"?  When has a Star Wars movie ever been referred to or thought of as a "book"?  I guess "Saga of Boba Fett" doesn't quite roll of the tongue.

I dunno.  Personally, nothing that Disney or Marvel puts out excites me, and things like the generic title just reek of "creative decisions by committee" to me.  I hope to be proven wrong and learn it's really good, though.

It makes no difference what men think of war, said the judge.  War endures.  As well ask men what they think of stone.  War was always here.  Before man was, war waited for him.  The ultimate trade awaiting its ultimate practitioner.  That is the way it was and will be.  That way and not some other way.

If they made nothing but WWII games, I'd be perfectly content.  Hypothetical matchups from alternate history 1980s, asymmetrical US-bashes-some-3rd world guerillas, or minor wars between Upper Bumblescum and outer Kaboomistan hold no appeal for me.

I guess it's sort of nice that the word "tactical" seems to refer to some kind of seriousness during your moments of mental clarity.

   I did.  Pretty good.  Sort of like Firefly only a lot better.  More deeply atmospheric than say Agents of Shield, which was maybe too tongue-in-cheeky or arch.  I agree the Marvel stuff is a bit over-mixed
but the Star Wars things lately seem okay.  Not the movies (which are kind of infantile)...

The one recent movie that I really enjoyed was Rogue One. But I have enjoyed The Mandalorian more and have  very high expections for Book of Boba Fett.

Solo was very good. Although very brief, the trench warfare scene with regular imperial infantry was phenomenal and exactly the dark authentic direction I think Star Wars needs to take.

Oh yeah, Rogue One was indeed quite good.  I never saw Solo but I saw those Imperial Guard esque battle scenes on YouTube and was quite impressed.  I have not seen the Mandalorian but heard good things.

I also liked those trench warfare scenes in Solo.

Mandalorian is time well spent esepcially if you like the grittier, dirtier side of Star Wars, al.

and have any of you bothered to watch all 7 seasons of The Clone Wars?  both it and Rebels are excellent and provide a ton of context to the whole universe.  it might surprise you to know that the very best lightsaber duels happen in animation.

Ahsoka vs Maul  Clone Wars season 7


Ahsoka vs Vader  Rebels season 2

Looks awesome honestly. 

Rogue One and Mandalorian have been solid Star Wars. 

Super looking forward to this one.

for Jarhead, the only true samurai battle in all of Star Wars:

Obi vs Maul Rebels season 4


while Maul was almost a throw away villian in the phantom menace he is truly fleshed out and becomes one of the most interesting characters in the franchise.  most of the new shows are going to draw heavily on the animated storied as they are under the control and direction of the same person.
